Welcome!  Today’s SHEro is Lysa Black, who has been a life coach for the last seven years, after overcoming eating disorders. She finally allowed compassion and forgiveness to heal her lifelong disorders and transform her life in all areas.

Join me for an inspiring conversation with Lysa!

 

In this episode, Lysa shares:

  • How it took her a while to realise that she had been an overeater for her whole life, and that this was a barrier to loving herself and loving others.

  • She lived in Japan for awhile, lost weight, and then realised that the extra weight was not the root of her problems.

  • As she looked for love, she embarked on the journey to love herself.

  • “Layer by layer, I fell into deep acceptance, realising that real love is simply a lack of judgement.”

  • Her belief that many women hide behind their weight.

  • That she believes that when we encounter pain, it means that we are out of alignment with the truth.

  • How she embraced the pain of trying every way possible to obtain a man’s love, and it was fruitless.

  • How we try to fulfil the desires of true love, freedom, true power, and true connection.

  • That she has no shadows or inhibitions any longer, and has met and married an old friend who became her husband.

  • The Secret of Love: “We are all deeply afraid of love because it is unexplainable and unfathomable. We fear the lack of control in love.”

  • You have to be deeply committed to loving yourself, and then the relationship with a partner can be a reflection of that love.

  • Lysa’s biggest success: “Forgiving my mother has been a beautiful gift that has brought much power into my life, and I love that I can love her now!”

About Lysa:

Lysa Black has been coaching for 7 years; 'Binge eating' was the foundation of her initial work after finally allowing forgiveness and compassion to heal her life long eating disorder. Soon a wide range of dependency based needs came forward, and Lysa felt to use the same skills and steps to support women out of depending on alcohol, marajuana, over-spending and casual one night stands to see that the feeling we can't feel will compel our shadow behaviours.

Healing is a process of reclaiming our truth, a process which returns us home to our purpose, power and peace.

Lysa was led to heal her patterns of anxiety, binge eating and romantic break-ups. She now leads and guides women through their own self-healing experience, home to the power of their truth.

Welcome!  Today’s SHEro Carol Lee, shares how she turned to food to numb the pain of the tragic death of her husband.  

Her diet, high in sugar, eventually caught up with her, causing panic attacks, anxiety issues, and reactive depression.  She knew she HAD to change, so she worked to use food to heal her.  

Join me for an inspiring conversation with Carol!

 

Carol has worked in complementary health since 1993, both as a 5-element acupuncturist and as a nutritional therapist.  She combines the everyday with the spiritual, walking with a foot in both worlds.  

She helps people make simple, practical changes in how they eat and cook to create a more nourishing and flourishing life.

 

In this episode, Carol shares:

  • How she discovered a platform for telling people about the negative aspects of the pre-packaged diet food industry via an “Aha” moment 15 years ago

  • How her passion for food and nutrition shaped her life’s path.  She even left her work as a social worker for full-time motherhood, and then for training as a nutritional therapist

  • How she listened to her intuition and never regretted the decision

  • How Carol used healthy foods and solid nutrition to help boost her husband’s health during his cancer treatment

  • How Carol, during another “Aha” moment, realised that she had to look after herself before she could look after her sick husband and two sons

  • How Carol practices self-care by walking daily and preparing the healthy foods she wants to eat, even if they may not be what her sons would prefer

  • Another “Aha” moment involved Carol’s writing a book to raise money for a children’s charity

  • Handling “Aha” moments means you have to be open to them and TAKE ACTION

  • Carol’s biggest success are her books and the fact that she’s still inspired and trying to make a difference

**Please be advised that this interview contains topics that may cause some people distress.

 

Welcome!  Today’s SHEro Tabitha Jayne (Tabi), who shares how she went from a troubled young person to a published author, international speaker, eco-psychologist, and natural growth consultant.  

She helps people create meaningful and purposeful, stress-free lives and businesses with the help of nature. She is the creator of The Nature Process and Tree of Transformation.

Join me for an inspiring conversation with Tabi!

 

Tabi’s life turned around when she was 22 and her younger brother, age 17, was killed in a car accident.  

Until that point, she used drugs and alcohol to mask the pain of a troubled childhood that included being bullied at school and a rape incident at age 16.  It was the loss of her brother that motivated her to stop 'wasting her life' and to begin pursuing her dreams.

 

In this episode, Tabi discusses:

  • Tabi realised that our society does not deal with death well. She had to find ways to work through her grief, which led her to rediscover nature that she had loved as a child.

  • She noticed that when she spent more time outside that she felt better.

  • She found trees to have a magical quality and shares the inspirational story of climbing a tree that brought her back into fellowship and harmony with nature.

  • Tabi found a way to merge her two loves of nature and psychology to become an “eco-psychologist.” She learned how to use coaching to articulate and teach others.

  • Tabi shares how her journey of the last five years has involved connecting with others through the power of nature. “The future belongs to those who are nature-smart.”—Richard Louv

  • Tabi addresses the dilemma of how modern society can balance technology and nature.

  • Everything in nature has a path of growth and renewal just like we, as humans, need growth and renewal.

  • Tabi uses the reality of light and dark in nature as metaphors for the stages and steps in our lives.

  • Tabi’s greatest success has been the development of The Nature Process, which is a 5-step online program and now, a book. 

  • Proceeds from her program have raised huge funds for Tree Sisters, which supports feminine leadership and reforestation.

  • “When I struggle to have faith, I go to nature. When I couldn’t believe in myself, I could believe in nature.”

Biggest Learning:

'Confidence within myself and trust.'

To realise how valuable she is and how valuable her knowledge is to the world.

Because of her interests, Tabi was so used to perceiving herself as weird one in her family that she didn’t want to share her gifts with the world.

It was the most humbling experience of her life to share her knowledge of nature with others and see their transformation.

Welcome!  Today’s SHEro is Heather Ash, who chose to go against the norm and listen to her inner voice regarding having a home birth, which was not a common thing to do in her area.  In fact, in her home state of Georgia, it’s not even legal for midwives to attend home births.  

Heather, however, followed her heart.  

She says the best thing about her life is being a mum to her two daughters, ages 3 and 7.  Heather encourages other mums through her blog and podcast, Happiness Mama, and works in her own coaching business. 

Join me for an inspiring conversation with Heather!

 

Heather shares how she assumed a hospital birth would be sufficient until she read a book about midwives and doulas, and her mind was changed.  Home births were not common where she lived, and her doctor actually dropped her and other home birth patients as a result of pressure from the medical community.  She chose another Ob-Gyn but never disclosed her desire to have a home birth! 

In this episode, Heather discusses:

  • How Heather’s home birth turned out, even though the midwife arrived only a few minutes before the baby!

  • How Heather battled post-partum depression and anxiety but didn’t even realize it until much later.

  • How breastfeeding issues presented a huge challenge that took determination and perseverance to overcome.

  • How Heather was able to spend time at home with both of her daughters after they were born before she had to return to work.

  • How Heather has used her blog to encourage other mums to live their happiest lives.

  • How Heather’s biggest success is to “be here” for her children and spend time with them.

  • How she has grown stronger through her experiences, and she desires to coach other women through their own challenging life experiences.

Welcome! My guest today is Jo De Rosa. Jo shares how she battled addiction for decades until yoga and meditation literally saved her life.

She has recently celebrated 1000 days of sobriety!

She has lived in Thailand and the UK, running a clothing and jewellery shop, a yoga studio, and a retreat centre. Her business, Inner Guidance, offers coaching, workshops, and retreats focusing on emotional and spiritual healing, nutrition, and visioning for the future.

Join me for an inspiring conversation with Jo!

Jo candidly shares about the excesses of her adult life, until yoga and meditation showed her a better path. Even in the midst of the addiction pattern, she felt a calling to search for something else for her life. When she attended her first yoga class, it was an “epiphany” moment—exactly what she was searching for to change her life forever!

In this episode, Jo discusses:

  • How yoga eventually led to soul-satisfying meditation in her life, and how you can start small and incorporate this practice into your life

  • How she overcame the power struggle between the “old Jo” and the “new Jo” she wanted to become 

  • How family and friends responded to the extreme changes she made in her life—some were supportive and some were not

  • Jo keeps the faith in herself by acknowledging that her inner peace comes from her meditation

  • Hear the miraculous story of how Jo and her husband came to own a 16th-century property that has become the Inner Guidance Retreat Centre

  • How Jo does NOT regret any of her life experiences: “I had to go through what I did to be where I am right now!”

 

Biggest Learning:

Trust.
Trusting herself, trusting the process. Trusting that everything is happening for a reason. It has to happen this way for you to be your full potential, so that you can shine in the world.

Say YES and mean it.

Do things because you say 'YES' to them, not because you 'should' do them.

About Jo:

Jo offers coaching, workshops and retreats where students can fully immerse themselves into their practice, and most importantly, learn how to take the information home with them and integrate it into their daily lives.

Yoga is a complete lifestyle and Jo teaches not only the physical postures, but also nutrition, visioning for the future and meditation. This enables you to feel balanced mentally and emotionally, as well as physically.

Jo teaches yoga in the Iyengar style and spent one year in training with her first teacher Suzie in Koh Samui, Thailand.

Jo has spent much time in India and completed the Sivananda one month intensive training in Neyyer Dam, Trivandrum. Here she stayed in the ashram for one month living and breathing yoga before heading from the southern tip of India to the Himalayas where she met and studied with Sharat Arora.

It was at this time that Jo also became involved with the Tibetan Buddhist movement in Dharamsala.

In 2006 Jo took refuge with HH Karmapa which is a great honour, and was given the Tibetan name ‘Karma Choekyi’, which means ‘happy teacher’.

The Karmapa is head of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, and although this is a different lineage to HH Dalai Lama, it is now public knowledge that HH Karmapa will succeed HH Dalai Lama as leader of Tibet.

Danielle shares how after investing so much in her 10 year career and building up her private practice, she made the very hard decision to leave it behind to become a mum.

She shares how she went through guilt and embarrassment as she made this incredibly tough decision for her and her family. 

Danielle shares that she was heading towards burnout, when she unexpectedly became pregnant and was delighted.

However, everything changed as she suffered a miscarriage.

Danielle reveals how this left her feeling devastated. She began to re-evaluate everything.

She began to question what she was doing with her life. Was she even really happy? Had she gotten to see her daughter (who was then 3 years old) learn and change and grow? Was the work that she was doing actually making a difference? Why did she leave a previous job that she loved for more time with her daughter, only to find that a couple of years later, she only saw her when she was in bed?

Two months later Danielle became pregnant again and decided in that moment, things had to change and she walked away from her 10 year career so that she could focus on growing her baby and being the best mum she could be.

She shares that although it was her choice to leave, she left with her guilt, embarrassment, and shame that took her many months of reflection and willingness to do the hard work, to get through.

Danielle shares how this has led her to create a life and business that support both her and her family. 

Biggest Learning:

Accept that things change.
Still have your own goals, but as a mum you may have to evaluate how long it will take you to get them and how you’ll actually get them.

Heather shares how after having a typical standard and conventional start to her life, she began to follow her inner knowing which then took her on unexpected journeys that have taken her all around the world.

She shares her story of how facing her fears connected her to her true passion and purpose.

Heather shares how her first 'call' came when she was on a study abroad program in University.  She was on the fairly standard path of college, likely followed by grad school, and then career…

But it all changed when she signed up to go on a tall ship training program. The only problem being that she was terrified of sailing!

Heather shares that she knew that the only way to get over her fears was to face them. She signed up to spend six weeks at sea on a tall ship and got more than she bargained for.

Not only did she get over her fear of sailing, she fell in love with it. It opened her up to a whole new way of living and seeing the world.

Heather recounts her experience of sitting up on top of the mast of the ship as they were about to arrive at their destination in Cuba, the first port stop after 2 weeks at sea, when she had the realisation that while she was excited about arriving at their destination, more importantly she had grown to love and appreciate the journey even more!

It was at this point that Heather realised that she wanted to live her life in a way that embraced the journey as much, or more than, the destination.

Since then she has followed her inner knowing and it has lead her on a fairly unconventional journey, which has seen her working on, and running, farms across the United States, Canada, and Europe.

Heather shares her tales of being a apprentice as a wooden boat builder and teaching students from preschool through adult in gardening, cooking, and connecting more deeply with the land.

Most recently Heather got married and moved across the sea to a new country where she now lives with her love.

Elyse shares how following her chart success in the 90's, she then left the music scene due to self-doubt, as she no longer believed she could sing.

She shares her story of how she found herself again, and re-connected to her passion and purpose.

Elyse joined her first band with a group of friends at the age of 14. They were called Low Profile and had eight members. Elyse began by playing keyboards and backing vocals, but eventually moved onto Lead Vocals and Songwriting as it came so easy and natural to her. 

Elyse says; ‘I used to write lyrics about ‘lost love’, ‘looking for love’ etc….I would write about how I was waiting for someone to come and rescue me, love me. Nowadays I am at the other end of this spectrum and I write about ‘self love’, love energy’, ‘gratitude’ and more, all positive uplifting encouraging words.’

Following her success with MAXX in the mid 1990’s, Elyse went through a period of self doubt and couldn’t sing herself for many years. During this time she undertook lots of personal development which included Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Emotional Freedom Technique, energy work, nutrition, fork-tuning therapy, vocal techniques, etc. She recalls:’ I became a workshop junkie, desperately trying to figure out how to fix things, but I also began to shape the link between sound, energy and vibration which would lead to a more holistic approach to my future music.’

Around 2009, Elyse was working as a freelance vocal tutor, she remembers that one of her jobs was to run a music workshop with mental health patients. ‘I noticed that they loved to sing happy songs: it would lift them high and they would dance, smile and radiate an inner glow. These were special moments and it showed me that uplifting music can heal. However, although I sang along with the group, when it came to singing alone, I just couldn’t!’

Elyse says that at this time she began to feel exhausted with life. She was affected negatively by other people’s misery, their illnesses, with paying the mortgage, other bills and just existing. Inside, she had this deep yearning to live a life of rich abundance, health, vitality and happiness. She wondered if she would ever sing again. She missed it deeply and felt like a huge part of her was missing. 

In the summer of 2012 Elyse made a major life decision and sold her house, car and other material possessions, giving some away to charity and friends. She’d heard the saying "If it’s not working, change it." and decided to do just that. She explains, ‘I thought, if I want to have a chance to sing again, I will have to change my life.’

Elyse travelled to Nepal, where she became a voluntary music teacher, in a school located high up in the Kathmandu Valley. She lived with a family of nine, which was hard going, as she and her husband both have no siblings so were not used to such large families. One evening, three of the nine children of the house put on a Nepalese dance show, and the whole family sang and danced together. 

Elyse shares that she was deeply moved, and cried. ‘The Nepalese family asked for our contribution. I remember my husband pointed to me and said, to my utter horror, "She’s the singer in the family." I was put on the spot, but I recalled how, in the 90s, I had sung to thousands of people, and so I reasoned what would it matter if I performed to this small family up here in the valley? I sang the three new songs I had written, and they loved it. The host commented that he did not understand many of the English words I sang, but my tone and emotion were beautiful! 

The next day in school, the children asked: "Excuse me Miss, was that you singing in the valley last night?" Unbeknown to me, the whole of the valley had heard my voice and my words. I knew then that I had to continue, to spread my message of love, hope and peace through music. I had broken through my fear. My mind became open to new possibilities. It was then that I knew I would sing again!’

In January 2013, after a 16 year break from fame, Elyse stepped back into the studio to record her first solo album, The Love Energy. The album consists of nine songs with very positive lyrics. Each song has been carefully tuned to centre on each of the nine principal ancient Solfeggio healing tones. The healing frequency runs subliminally right through each song, creating an overall balance and euphoric state for the listener. 

Elyse says: ‘ I just remembered who I was, and why I was here. I remembered my mission, my purpose. This is how I found my self-belief to pursue my music career. It was there all along, underneath, waiting for me. I just needed to believe in me again, and I am so grateful I did.’

Biggest Learning:

That we are resilient, and that we are strong.
That we need to tap into our own inner power and not listen to external influences.

Support yourself with awesome, rocking people.
We need to tap into play, fun and loving energy.

About Elyse:

Elyse Rogers is a vocalist with energy, a songwriter with inspiration and a versatility from experience. She explains where she has come from, where she is going and what it means for you.


“I have been a singer and songwriter from age 14. My early period was typical – working hard, understanding my strengths, learning what my fans wanted. That brought success – topping the charts with the German band MAXX, appearing on ‘Top of the Pops’ and touring the country. As I developed, my intuition told me I could do more with my music. So I started exploring.”

2012 was a defining moment for Elyse – the discovery of frequencies from our past.

” I heard about a 528 hertz frequency that gave amazing results. But I didn’t realise it was one of a family of six, until a fellow musician introduced me to the others….the Solfeggio Frequencies, hidden for centuries but now re-discovered. I listened and felt how they gave music and songs a greater substance and depth, almost a healing power. I can’t explain why, I just know it works. And I wanted it to work for all my fans, past, present and future. “

Karen shares how it was a health crisis that brought her into alignment with where she is now.

Ever since she was a small child, she could hear, see and perceive things that not everyone else could and she chose to tell them to ‘shut up!’

Ignoring it, pushing it aside, because she didn't want to be seen as weird.

Then in her early 40’s she had her health crisis. Karen had already had a rich growing up of doing lots of things and exploring lots of things that allowed her to use her intuition, but there was an underlying feeling that something wasn’t quite right.

 

She didn’t know what to do with the feeling of being out of alignment or not being on the right path, because she had not fully opened herself to her true path.

She needed to reconnect to her spirit guides.

Karen explains that there is no magic to connect with your guides, you just say ‘Hello’

She says the ability to connect with our guides is always on, all that needs to change to be able to connect is our perception, we need to turn inwards.

She didn’t hear her guides because she had closed her ear and her heart to them, and the only time she could use her intuition was when she was in crisis.

This led to a negative psychic experience, because when you bury something down and try to ignore it, it always pops back up.

 

Biggest Learning:

Who I am, at my deepest level, shines out of me, no matter what I think I’m doing to cover it up. And why I can try and hide, my essential self is still shining.

And all of the time that I spend trying to cover it up or being ashamed of it, is time I could spend doing something else.

LJ shares that after a nasty incident at work her friend asked her if it was going to be a new company or a new career, she chose a new career.

LJ explains how she left her career in IT to become a teacher, even though it meant a 50% reduction in her salary. Yet she readily admits, that the salary cut was a reason that this change had been delayed...

When she found herself just trying to get to the end of the next three month project, she knew something had to change.

The money was no longer worth the hassle 

LJ shares that she chose to go in to teaching because she understand the power of teaching, having experience both the very good and the very bad.

Her high school teacher had told her that she couldn’t do maths, and she had believed him.
Yet later in her career, she met another teacher who believed in her, and because of him she now holds a degree in engineering.
Having seen both the sides of a teacher, she wanted to be able to give that positive experience to others.

She will now be teaching math to high school students.

LJ shares that 5 years ago she would have thought she would be working for herself and setting her own hours, she never would never have envisioned she would have been working for her principality 

She now understands that it’s okay to work for someone else if you’re happy.

She did IT because it was easy for her and paid well, but she wants to teach because it's what she loves to do.

LJ explains that if she ignores her intuitive messages, she gets clunked over the head by a piece of 2 x 4, so now if she hears these messages, especially when she hears them more than once, she makes sure she listens.

Biggest Learning:

It is possible to follow your dreams.

I am happier and more excited about working than she has been for a long happy.
Sometimes your path may not be working for yourself, but in more of a service role.

Karina shares how she had The Call when she was working in a traditional 9-5 role and although it didn't become her business for 10 years, she learnt to trust herself and her gifts as she continually practised her channelling skills.

A week after doing the channelling course and ‘receiving’ a large heart, she met her husband. Even though she wasn’t looking for love, she explains that it was like she had made the connection and everything started falling in to place.

Karina shares how the more she acted on her seemingly crazy hunches from her spirit guides, the more she noticed that it worked.

Karina shares how she knows it messages form her spirit guides and not just her imagination.

Initially she created a secret world and only shared her business with the closest to her and those who she knew would support her.

Even today, sometimes when she meets people she says that she works in communications, as she does, but not the way most people would assume.

She shares how that when you hear the call, you know that it’s what you’re supposed to do, but you don’t know how it’s going to work out, so the initial dream needs protecting and nurturing.

Karina tells us that when she followed The Call, it wasn’t all smooth sailing, at each new step, all her 'stuff' would come out. But although it took a long time to start, once she did, it was like ‘go go go’, and she has received support from all sorts of places and felt so on track.

It was the inner knowing and feeling she was in the right place – this carried her through the ups and downs.

She feels that she created the experience she needed to keep moving forward.

One of the reasons that she didn’t start her business earlier is she was thinking about all of the terrible things that could happen, but in reality lots of amazing things happened.

Karina shares that when she starts to become overwhelmed in her business, she has to remove herself from her computer and go and do something different.

One of her biggest breakthrough came when she realised that it didn’t matter if she could make a living with her gifts, as she would always have them and could still use them and offer them to herself too. Everything was going to be ok –two days later the clients kept rolling in and her inbox exploded with clients wanting readings.

Surrendering and breaking down can be a great way to move through.

Ruby shares how she tapped into her inner confidence and turned her life around, despite suffering from severe anxiety, panic attacks, raging don't mess with me attitude, crushing sense of inadequacy, and a hopeless need to please everyone.

Ruby shares how she left home before she finished grade twelve. She did finish grade twelve, but left home and moved out because she just knew that she had to leave. She went home, packed her stuff, and left.

At this time she had the opportunity to take a full time job, and stay in her small community, and work in the bar, and be the same forever, or she could take a chance to move with a friend to a city a couple hours away that she didn't know, where she didn't know anyone, but she had to decide right there. She made the choice to move, and left.

Ruby shares how she can make these quick choices as she explains what it feels like and how she identifies it as a call from her soul, and not just a moment of madness.

She shares that her most challenging decision was to leave a career in finance and planning. To leave the stability, and potential growth of the industry, and walk away from it. To walk away from it to be a mom, and to learn how to be a mom, and to find herself again, and then to grow forward into where she is today.

Ruby shares that becoming a mom was a huge turning point in her life. How it changed everything. Bringing a lot of stuff to a head - how it instigated a lot of looking into her inner world, and looking back on her childhood, and understanding things better, and understanding what she needed to change, and understanding patterns that she didn't want to continue with her own children. 

Ruby shares her experience of falling apart, so that she could find herself again.

Biggest Learning:

Not listen to the fear.

You can use fear as a signpost, but you don't want to listen to fear. It's like fear is your GPS giving you the wrong direction, but it's, also, giving you a point, because you go 'you really want me to go that way', so there must be something really important that I need to find the other way.

It's always an opportunity to learn something about yourself and to heal something within yourself, because the fear is rising up, because there's something in there that you're denying, or hiding, or not looking at, that you don't want  to see or you don't want to deal with.

Holly shares how she left her business in Mexico, of 8 years, and one which she loved, and moved first to Argentina and then to the UK.

She shares how it was a really hard decision for her to make, because her gut was saying you need to leave, but her heart was saying you have this really beautiful business that we’d created from the ground up, why would you leave it.

Eventually she'd had enough, and knew it was time to leave.

Holly shares that with little more than a gut feeling, she and her husband, packed up and moved to the UK.

In the beginning, she had no job or business, and with her optimistic nature she thought she could just start a business or find work, and she thought it would all be easy.

But she shares that it wasn’t, it was really hard.

Initially she trained as a coach, but that wasn't really for her. Then she took a job, and that wasn't for her either.

Holly explains that it felt like an uphill struggle.

However, this changed when she started listening to the call.

Holly's business was evolving, but the most dramatic shift happened when she trained in PSYCH-K®, she initially trained in it for personal reasons, but it changed her life and transformed her business.

Although Holly now listens to her intuition, she shares it wasn't always like that for her.

Originally, she had suppressed so many things, including her intuition, that she had no clue who she was any more, her intuition was non existent because she was so disconnect from her self.

But little by little, she dug down deep to get to know herself more. The more she paid attention to her intuition the more it has grown, before that she was completely lost.

Biggest Learning:

The power of being in touch with yourself. Making decisions based on what I want and not what I’m afraid other people will think/do as a result of my decision.

Froydis Egge-Jacobsen shares that after a rough divorce to the father of her child, her husband of over a decade and her business partner, she felt like her life was falling apart and she didn't know what she was going to do with herself.

She shares how everything changed when she just clicked on a seemingly random  link on the internet – she didn't know why she clicked the link, but liked what she saw.

The website was for coaching and Froydis explains that it was just what she needed to help her see things differently.  

Having a coach made her dig deep in to herself and she loved the transformation and insight so much, that she realised that she was going to be a coach too.

As she looks back, she can’t even compare herself, especially when she looks at how she views the future.

Froydis shares how she has always lived her life her own way and chosen to take life changing opportunities, when she has felt guided by no more than a feeling.

She has always been determined to live life with no regrets.

Froydis reminds us that as you get older you realise how fragile life really is – and as far as she knows you live only once

Froydis is at the beginning of a new chapter and is excited about creating a new life for her and her son, but shares that even a year ago she didn't have such a positive view for the future

She believes that it’s so important to take the small steps, as they've taken her to great places (bigger isn’t always best)

Iris Fritschi-Cussens shares that for her, the idea of being a SHEro meant connecting to the process of becoming herself and finding out what that even meant in the first place.

She shares how she has used her art as a form of self-expression so that she can connect more deeply to herself, and how by allowing whatever is going to come out through her art, from deep inside of her, is a process that is both scary and exciting at the same time. 

Iris explains how she would get really inspired by art and it would be the only thing that she could think about while she was at work. And then in the evening at home she would just feel either uninspired or too scared to start creating and would just end up watching TV instead.

She explains how she felt she couldn't trust that she could make something that she would be satisfied with, and how she has now created a process to overcome this.

Art became a gradual form of self discovery, as she began to realise that was a 'me' out there that she had not really explored, and that she had been hiding the authentic her for many, many years.

Iris reveals how she had always felt that there is a certain path, a conservative path, one where there is no conflict, as she hated conflict. She used to purposefully avoid conflict and felt this led her to a safe, boring and ultimately, unfulfilling life. And how by slowly discovering that if she is her authentic self, she might create a little bit more conflict with people, but she is so much happier so it feels like a 'no brainer trade off'.  

Biggest Learning:

How to show up in the world authenticity and that all the answers are inside of us.

Ari Powell shares how she is currently in a place of huge transition, and how all of her plans were turned upside down when she suffered the most devastating loss.

She explains that great plans don’t always happen the way you plan them, and that although she is still coming to terms with her loss and is grieving, she knows that she doesn't have all of the answers, but will continue to move forwards towards her original goals.

Ari talks about how her initial plan needs changing, but she is still working towards the same plan.

‘The journey is different, but the destination remains the same’

She is taking this time to clear out the emotional 'stuff' and enjoy being herself – enjoying work on her terms

Although she is returning to work, albeit, in a different role, she has chosen to do this as it's a safe place, and as she is the main income earner for the family it takes the stress out of the situation.

Ari had originally planned to leave this job sooner as something in her life wasn't quite clicking, despite all of work she was doing, she couldn't quite get into the 'groove'.

She had looked into personal development, had hired a coach, but something still wasn't right.

Then she came across Creatrix, at first she was very sceptical, she thought it sounded good, but confesses that she is tight with money, and thought it sounded too unconventional.

So she tried the conventional methods first as they were the safe option. Ari explains that although on some level they worked, and were of benefit, but something still wasn’t clicking…

She found herself on a level 1 Creatrix training and on the first day thought 'What have I done, I’ve wasted my money.'

Then she had her breakthrough - Remove doubt and everything else will follow...

She did just that, it clicked and then was a total convert to the process!

Ari went from the biggest doubter, to then training in the program and becoming a facilitator and uses this work to transform the lives of women.

Biggest Learning:

Goals evolve in their own time. If I try to force it too quickly, I would have sabotaged my efforts.

Set goals that are towards something (not away from something), as this gives your brain one option, then if things don’t go as planned you will detour, but still head in that one direction.

Set a goal, even if you are unsure of the big picture, make the goal a feeling.

About Ari:

Ari is an Empowerment Coach, Licensed Creatrix® Facilitator, public speaker, group trainer, business networker and founder of Polish Your Sparkle. Her mission is to empower women with the skills and knowledge to harness their emotional strength, to confront life’s challenges, and to relaunch their life guilt free and with certainty so they can courageously claim their most fulfilling life.

"As women we need a safe place to explore our potential, to talk through our goals and formulate a plan. We need to be praised to success. Empowered with the skills to tackle life’s challenges and the confidence to commit to and ultimately own our decisions. To get to a place where not only do we believe what we say when we justify our choices but that we no longer feel the need to justify our choices in the first place.

I think these days women often feel like they’re committing “superwoman fraud” and are waiting to be caught out. I know I certainly felt that way. What I love about what I do is that I can help women who are in the same place I was, by equipping them with techniques and understandings that will make the process so much easier, less stressful, less frustrating and assist them to get to a more fulfilling place in their life, be it at home or work. This is my purpose and my mission. This is how I help women and this is why they work with me." Ari Powell

Donna Higton shares with us how she left her everyday routine to go backpacking to the other side of the world.

She explains how although friends and colleagues advised her against it she left everything she knew to go travelling and that how it was on this adventure she 'found herself'.

Donna returned from her travels with passion and purpose, but was soon fell back in to her old routines, even back to the same job. She knew something had to change and she shares exactly what did. 

Although Donna was living the life she was 'supposed to want', she had a successful job, great social life, house etc but she had a nagging feeling that there must be more to life. 

So she did what she had never even considered before, she went travelling. 

During her adventures she fully understood the concept of enjoying the journey, and that it wasn't about the destination.

That the beauty was in the unfolding of discovering herself, and this this process was more valuable than any label she could give herself.

This process also allowed her to become an author. She shares how ever since she was a child she had always wanted to write. But it took her until she was 35yrs old to acknowledge this truth and another 7years to admit it to others.

Joanna Hennon shares with us how it took a nervous breakdown before she claimed back her passions, from her teenage years, back in into her life.

She explains how she turned her back on her fascination with anything to do with the soul and spirit guides, when she consciously decided it was 'stupid to be interested in it', and that it was time to grow up and be in the real world.

So she went into a corporate world and was ambitious. She describes it as 'playing office', and that her 'pretty' suits were a costume. Joanna created a whole world around this way of life, because she didn't know there was another way. 

This changed one day when she was reading O magazine, and it featured a woman who had a super high powered job, and gave it up to make wall paper. Joanna recognised that this woman had made a different choice from the typical 9-5 corporate life and was not only being recognised for it, but was being successful too! 

She realised that there was a possibility that she too could be successful leaving her corporate world and following her passions.

Joanna shares that it was during the recovery from her nervous breakdown that she started to feel good again, calm again, she was no longer shouting at everyone, and she started to ask herself if it was possbile to feel like this every day.

It was simple these questions that would lead Joanna back to herself and her true path.

But of course it wasn't without a few more obstacles...

Biggest Learning:

To have confidence in herself.
That she’s deserving of wonderful things.
That she is a soul – an unlimited being – and that gives her immense confidence

About Joanna:

'I’m not your regular spiritual, intuitive person. You will definitely not find me walking around barefoot in my backyard. It’s more likely that I’ll be watching Modern Family or Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the best tv show of ALL time), sipping red wine. Oh and I love shoes, especially black boots. I can literally shop till I drop, I don’t seem to have any other limits.

I’ve always been obsessed with past lives – it’s so fascinating to me that we have experienced so much and that we can either remember or get information about it! Past life stuff comes through regularly in my work because patterns are often from before this life, and I am so grateful that I get to work with this!

Over the past few years, I have learned to trust my intuition, even when things feel scary. Following my path – this work – has been the most fulfilling thing I have ever experienced. Worth every minute of self-doubt and fear.'
